Memphis Museums (Museum of Science & History-Pink Palace)
Log Number: MA-248946-OMS-21
The Museum of Science and History – Pink Palace will create an exhibition focusing on the history of Memphis’ LGBTQ community. The exhibit will run simultaneously with the traveling exhibit “Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement,” which provides national context for the local narrative. Along with local LGBTQ history, the exhibit will highlight contemporary opportunities and challenges that LGBTQ Memphians face. It will address the intersections of the Black Lives Matter and transgender rights movements. Museum curators will work with community stakeholders to determine exhibit content, secure artifact acquisitions/loans, and ensure the exhibit tells as complete and inclusive a story as possible.
